Ready for more comfortable insulin injections?

Introducing the NEW BD Insulin Syringe with the BD Ultra-Fine™
6mm needle

  • As effective as longer needles
  • Less intimidating
  • Reduces the risk of a painful injection in the muscle

Over 80% of patients with diabetes preferred the BD Insulin Syringe
with the NEW BD Ultra-Fine™ 6mm needle to their current needle

Latest clinical evidence and injection recommendations
advocate shorter needles

The latest injection technique recommendations published in Diabetes and Metabolism (2010) mentions the following. “Shorter needles are safer and are often better tolerated…Initial therapies should begin with shorter needles. Shorter needles reduce the risk of injecting into the muscle. 4, 5 and 6mm needles may be used by any adult patient including obese ones.”

There is no medical reason to use a needle longer than 6mm.

Your BD Insulin Syringe Scale is Changing

In keeping with the latest healthcare guidelines, all BD Ultra-Fine™ Insulin Syringe scales will
change to also include mL (millileter), the universal liquid measurement, over the next few months. 

This does not change the amount of insulin you use or the way that you use your insulin syringes.
For example, 0.5 cc equals 0.5 mL, which is the same as 50 units of insulin.
